Wink what's with the avatar mass change?

Just noticed that the mods have been changing their avatars a lot lately.

Is this some form of camouflage???

I get used to peoples avatars, throws me a bit when they change

Tony.

Actually, I had been changing mine pretty frequently (remember the dope-smoking monkey?) but got lazy. My current one was inspired by an odd coincidence I noticed while looking up something totally non-audio-related, and unfortunately displaced Krazy Kat, my long-time hero.

Well, I think I need to have a slightly more rapid turnover!

Yeah SY the dope smoking monkey seemed to be around pretty much from when I joined, was a little suprised that you changed your avatar (appaerntly since I hadn't been on for a while) twice in the last few months.

I think Pinkmouse and Planet10 also had pretty much had the same avatars since I joined, all seemed to change at once, started thinking there was some sort of conspiracy going on

edit: that's a lot of pink mice you have there pinkmouse

P10 has actually changed avatar... not often though.

BTW: Maybe I also should change? Remember the picture of a purple living stone which people did get associations to certain objects.

I had also a picture of myself taken by my then 4 year old daughter.... but I had to remove it because I too was ugly.

Wasn't the real wintermute a gold and crystal head, or is my memory playing tricks again? That could be a cool avatar if you could find one.

I thought I replied to this last night...... hmmm... Um I thought that wintermute never took on any "form" so to speak, at least not in Neuromancer, however perhaps he did in Count Zero, I think that the virtual stuff was more advanced in count zero, been a long time since I read it so my memory may be faulty too

I do see some really cool avatars every now and then, but I haven't come up with anything to replace my madelbrot yet.

I kinda like the fact that it is a DIY one generated on my old Amiga 3000 using a program I wrote myself

Tony.

Big up to the fellow Amiga fan! I was heartbroken when my old A4000 finally passed away about 6 months ago. Strange that I used to think I would never manage to fill a 80meg hard drive!

As for your namesake, I'll have a quick look for the book...

Have you seen this? http://www.amigaforever.com/

you can actually get the emulators for free from elsewhere and since you own a 4000, you have the roms, so can legally "obtain" a software download of them..... (in theory you are supposed to extract them off the machine but if it is dead that's a bit hard).... The amiga forever contains as far as I am aware the freeware emulator + legitimate copys of the roms.

Works quite well on an athalon 2000 machine (quite a bit faster then my A3000).... I did it mostly so I could play larn

My first HD was on my A1000 with phoenix board, 52MB scsi and it cost me the almighty sum of $450!!!!!! and yes I can remember one of my friends bought an 80meg HD and we thought he was so pretentious, cause you could never ever need that much space

Tony.
